7 For All Mankind Slim Illusion; a.k.a. Spanx

There is no space between my thighs.  I’m not sure there was ever a space there.  I was born with chubby baby thighs, and they kind of just … stayed.  I envy girls with bony knees and thin legs that nearly buckle.  But I am not one of the lucky elite.  Soooo, jeans suck.  Seriously, I hate buying denim.  I know most women live in their favorite pair of jeans, but truth be told, I don’t really have a favorite pair of jeans.  They’re only okay.  And I spend money on jeans.  I get that expensive jeans do more for your butt than their less-pricey counterparts.  Girls with knobby knees can rock the cutest pairs of Old Navy jeans and look fan-tastic, but girls with butts and thighs, we need thick fabric, sturdy pockets, and stellar cuts.  And skinny jeans … those are even tougher.

After my long and windy diatribe about my chubby thighs, I suppose I should introduce to you the object of my affection … or so I hope … the latest in denim technology (oh yes, they require an abundance of technology): 7 For All Mankind Slim Illusion Jeans.

The 7 For All Mankind Slim Illusion Jeans, described by many as the Spanx of denim (oh Spanx, how I love thee), boast the “latest in denim technology that makes you feel at least one size smaller. Tighter construction and intense stretch create a sexy slim silhouette, while exclusive technology provides total shape recovery, making this the perfect fit.”  Sign me up.

Above is the NYC 7 For All Mankind (via Lucky Magazine’s Instagram) storefront window featuring the skinny breakdown.  Clever advertising.




  1. As a fellow chubby thigh girl, you’ve sold me!! Do you know if I can find these jeans as Nordstrom?

      Don’t they sound fabulous!? Not sure if they’re at Nordstrom yet — definitely not at Nordstrom online. They’re pretty new – just released at the end of June. I SO want them!

  2. These look amazing- I’m always on the search for jeans that make my stomach look a bit slimmer so I’m going to have to try these out!
